12.5% and right now, president obama is calling out the gop for what he says is your party to extend long-term unemployment benefits. take a look at what he says. >> for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers, including when the unemployment rate is lower than it is today, but now, that economic lifeline is in jeopardy all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be the most unproductive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> senator, let me ask you a direct question. do you personally, do you support extending unemployment benefits or would you let 1.3 million americans lose those benefits before the end of the year? >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they're paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers. there was a study that came out a few months ago and it said if you have a worker that's been unemployed for four weeks and on unemployment insurance, every employer, nearly 100%, said they will always hire the person who's been out of work four weeks. when you allow people to be
. >> as you walk in, there are tables out in front with lots of pamphlets, right? not, you know, prior to entering the gun show. and the am nets are all how the government's trying to take away your right to own guns and obama's doing this and that and obamacare's terrible. those were the guys i wanted to talk to. i said is this your stuff, and they said, yeah, who are you? i said, actually, i'm an academic, i'm a researcher, and i'm doing research on, you know, these organizations, these ideas and trying to to understand the guise of it and actually studying men who believe this stuff. and they, you know, a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and sort of asked me questions, and i just said, look, here's what i am, you know? i don't get it. so -- but here's my job, i want to understand how you guys see the world. i want to understand your world view. look, you will not convince me, and i will not convince you. that's off the table. what is on the table is i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> downward mobility, racial and gender equality. michael kimmel on the fears
not avoid trouble. >> there are a lot of golf analogies we could talk about. ben's right, obama dropped the ball on this. it doesn't surprise me he may have only met with her once beuse he certainly didn't do anything else he needed to do to make this rollout a success. look, obama care, said this before, is a good policy. the implementation is horrific. >> poorly executed. the nebraska senator who's now heading up all these insurance commissioners, he was telling me, i thought it was revealing, that they did wince at the time when the president said, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. i said, i don't remember you saying that at the time. he said, we did relay to the white house, i don't know who in the white house, that this was not feasible. there's a lot of liny covering here. i'm wondering if it's all part of the same story. of not keeping in contact with the health and human services secretary, the secretary not following up on warnings presumably from those in congress who were getting leery, something that could never happen. >> it was a complete failure to commun
not help the republicans' image. talking about tting food stamps. >> i think the polls are right and obama has been over that gap. the memedian house hold come was $56,000. is $5252,500. there has been a drop in median income. while the rich have watched their stocks double since the day obama came into offe. on the one hand he has a fed pumping up, inflating the pricinof housing and ststock, deliberately by prting a trillion dollars a y year of money. and on the other hand we have a drdrop, and this is unprececede, a drop in the recovery. this has been going on -- >> excuse me. can i -- >> i am going to finish first. obama comes in as if he is a bystander. if he were it would ban , interestining issue. he has beein office five years. the problem has gotten worse. now he discovers it. >> excuse me, there is another branch of government called the congress. a lot of the remedies obama has recommended have gone nowhere in the lalast coue of years. we will start there. secondly, i do not think the speech aually had all whwhole bunch of remies.s. but if you do t face this problem, if we do not
's right. god help us. the pope is like president obama. this dangerous duo spends their time striving for a better world of equality, faith and freedom. it sounds terrifying, doesn't it? and the hits just keep on coming. that fox column goes on to say, quote, just as president obama has been a disappointment for america, pope francis will prove a disaster for the catholic church. right. so let's just get this. this is the pope who's already reinvigorating a church with more than a billion members. he's called on catholics to more closely follow the teachings of a little book i like to call the bible when it comes to focusing oncalled out the failures of trickle down economics. reportedly snuck outside at night to wash the feet of the homeless. that's the guy. it was put best in a washington post column. limbaugh is right. somebody did get to pope francis. it was jesus. although i keep wondering if what conservatives are really angry about is that the pope's focus on the poor undermines their agenda of tax cuts for the wealthy, demonizing on social issues and cutting food stamps for ki
is what is damaging the economy right now. >> as they take budget off the table temporarily, what is obama doing as his domestic priorities? >> he has to devote all of his attention into righting the healthcare ship. this is his legacy-defining item. the enrollment numbers are looking pretty good but that is in the front end. enrollment is a lot different than actually getting the 7 million people that they need signed up and having purchased health care. they are focusing big on colleges, on getting the word out to be able to get the young uninsured signed up to balance out that risk pool. >> i am not in that risk pool. if they are going punt on entitlements and taxes, which they're going to do, they will not do it next year either, are they? >> i am starting to believe that none of that can happen meaning structural changes to entitlements until we have another big election or some kind of big economic shock that forces these lawmakers to come together. the house is a big part of the problem but the senate is becoming a big part of the problem as well. this goes back to politics and the

reputation riding on that. they have had five years for obama care.gov and they still can't get it right. >> fox news by the way is more efficient than what ted turner created. i had to throw that in, forgive me. it is simple though. basically in the private sector you have a bottom line. in the public sector it's just a bottomless pit, right? >> that's right. it's not simply that the private sector does it better but that they are constantly looking for ways to be more innovative, more effective. when you look at the cyber monday sales from this year, they're increased by 17 and a half percent over last year and making it easier for people to purchase through their tablets, their phones. this is something tat completely eludes the federal government. >> rick, let me put outope here. the president has a lot of contacts in silicon valley, any chance he can get some of those guys working on his website? >> i'm told there is a number of people from silicon valley involved so far. we still have issues on the back end but they're aressing them. >> quickly, john, go ahead. >> i think he got th
with lots of pamphlets; right? not prior to answering the gun show, and the pamphlets is how the government is trying to take your guns, goes iepg doing this, obama's doing that, obamacare's terrible. i wanted to talk to them. they are the guys with the ideas, the leaflets, and so i went up to the one table, and i just sort of said, you know, if i pick up a pamphlet, it's yours, and, you know, but four guys around at the table talking, and, you know, they looked at me suspiciously, and they said, who are you? >> host: you sound like way you are. you sound like a new yorker; right? it's hard to hide. >> guest: right. i'm a new york -- i'm a brooklyn, you know, jewish sociologist; right? >> host: right. grg so, you know -- >> host: feminist. >> guest: pick two. >> host: exactly. >> caller: i'm not going to, like, take fake a accent and be one of them. >> host: could you do it if you tried? >> guest: i doubt it, actually, but i don't think i would try, but i -- so i said to them, who are you, and i said, well, actually, i'm an academic, i'm a researcher doing research on these organizations, t
'll be that. y'all know the word that i'm talking about. obama care. that's right. i said it and i'm not ashamed. and neither is president obama. because he knows that of all his victories, over two terms in office, his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word. i mean, what do you call the president who rescues the u.s. auto industry? obama care. what do you call the president who finally eliminates osama bin laden? obama care. what do you call the president who ends don't ask, don't tell? say it with me. obama care! heard the one about the president who pulled us out of the greatest recession since the great depression? yep, obama care. and what about the one, you know, about the president who reduced drug sentencing disparities? obama care. stop if you have heard this one. a group of underpaid woman and the president who passed a pay equity law walk into a bar -- okay, you see where i'm going with this. short of bringing about world peace before he leaves office, the affordable care act will loom large in the president's legacy, as the singular accompl
the last five years between left and right since obama came into office is, essentially, a debate over the classic, the fundamental issue of our democracy. and all the debates -- obamacare, cap and trade, the stimulus -- all of these things are subsidiary to the central question that has been at the heart of our politics ever since he was sworn in. and that is what is the proper size and scope and reach and province of government. or to put it slightly more grandly, what's the nature of the american experiment, and to put it in its grandest terms, we've been arguing about the relationship between citizen and state. and the one column that sort of addresses that the most directly is a column called did the state make you great. and remember, that came right after obama made the famous statement if you have a business and you've had success, you didn't build that, somebody else made it happen. i mean, that's a crystallization of the great argument between left and right. and i try to point out in the column obama said what was almost a platitude, you know? you don't operate alone, there
's exactly right. i was a student at stanford when i heard the movement about divestment from south africa in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new york, it wasn't just that perso

of us looking at president obama and the man himself are looking at the same reality. we see the right wing attack and obstructing him relentlessly. he certainly sees it. we see the gall of economic justice as the big stakes of our time. and so does the president. and so does pope francis in rome. and this big goal, greater economic justice, is what's driving him. letting him weather from the right. he wants to help those most in need. but he also said this man who wanted to be a transformational president, great historic change, generally comes when one controls the government. times like the early new deal, the great society, and even the early months of the reagan presidency. is that what he's calling for? a big upset victory? next year's congressional elections. let's find out. robert gibbs is a political analyst and former press secretary under president obama. and david corn is an msnbc political analyst and washington bureau chief at mother jones. robert, you know better about him than most people. you've worked with him in tight situations. i hope you got to see our program las

against muslims in the last few years in this country as articulated in the far right's attack on president obama as -- which is have become a kind of a sense. but my view is that even this does not mean that silence on the topic of transport is appropriate or productive. and, in fact, my contention is one of the key ways to challenge discriminatory notion about people of muslim heritage is precisely to display their diversity. and that one of the ways to do that is to tell the stories of those were practicing muslims, those who are agnostic, or even atheists of muslim heritage who have been victims of muslim fundamentalism and have chosen their bravely to challenge fundamentalist movements. that's a project of my book and with remained a much i'm going to introduce you to a few of these people and it's difficult to pick favorite stories because they have all become very dear to my heart. let me start with a story from the first chapter which is called creativity versus the dark corner. this is a chapter about artists, visual artist and performing artist who i met in places lik

are not george bush's, they're not bill clinton's. they are his. and yes, the obama record poses a fundental threat to the american dream for millions of americans. he's got that right. take a look under mr. president. the income gap four times fast erbie comparing average wages to median wages, has expanded nearly four times faster than it did during george w. bush's terms in office. under president obama, 6.7 million more americans have fallen into poverty. under this president, the same one who had the utd tutter audacity to stand before cameras and speak as though he has been absolutely uninvolved in policy for the past five years. i mean an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. under president obama, the number of people receiving food stamps has risen by 50% to nearly 48 million americans. under president obama, 21.6 million americans are unemployed, underemployed or given up looking for work. under president obama, the average duration of un
connection.gov crashed right after it launched. maryland, one of the first states to jump right on the obama care bandwagon. the rollout sputed along over the past nine weeks. they've only enrolled about 3,000 residents in the whole state of marry land. a very, very blue state. >> roughly 700 people have been able to enroll over the last week or so. they are saying -- >> maybe she'll get her job back. >> an improvement. right. maybe it will be a paid vacation kind of things. it doesn't sound like it. there have been calls for people like kathleen sebelius to lose her job. the president has yet to hold anything accountable at the federal level. we spoke with governor mike huckabee and he says the president is out of the loop and he needs to learn how to manage. >> i think people need to realize as bad as the website is, and it's clearly been a train wreck, it's nothing compared to what happens when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for example, in states like washington state, nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. good managers
for the long term unemployed who are having a really hard time even getting a job interview right now. and focusing on sort of extending the problem i think is the wrong thing to focus on. if you look at president obama's economic speech, the part i like the best is his emphasis on addressing the long-term unemployment problem. he said he was going to meet with a bunch of executives at the white house soon and announce a new program. i'm quite eager to see what he says there. >> that you get a tax credit for hiring someone who has been unemployment for a certain time. >> these folks are really in trouble and the good unemployment news doesn't really affect the long-term -- >> but we should do both. we should help the folks that are still in trouble. kevin is right, there's an element that's there because of the ui program. >> and people that stay unemployed because they can get enough from unemployment. >> there's a lot of academic work and research, but my estimates a percentage is due to ui benefits. kevin is right, we have to work on long term structural unemployment -- >> but i wa
what do you see as the difference between how the bush administration and the obama administration approach the war on terror. >> right. , i mean, i think first of all it's great to be with you here on c-span and booktv. the bush with administration, i don't want to understate how atrocious i think that period was in american foreign policy. it really was like murder incorporated. the destruction of iraq, the creation of the cia black sites, the idea that the geneva convention was -- [inaudible] the abu ghraib torture, using guantanamo, you could go on and on in characterizing it. so i don't want to get into a thing about is obama worse than bush. i covered those wars, i know what happened. under president obama i think what we have is someone who has sort of rebranded some of the more egregious aspects of the bush-cheney counterterror apparatus and i think has convinced himself that they're waging a smarter war. so they're relying on the drones much more than the bush administration did, using small team of coovert operators to conduct either kill or capture, and because guantanam
from the right wing, comparing the pope to president obama. >> i think there's a lot to offer in the republican message that hasn't been offered in the past. >> if you want to talk about a war on women, look no further than this health care law. >> the 113th hasn't passed the bills every congress does. like a highway bill or defense bill or farm bill or a budget. >> let me end by addressing the elephant in the room. the seeming inability to get anything done in washington these days. >> i mean, what do we need a budget for? clearly not for

the government is trying to take away your rights and the government is doing this and obama is doing bad and obamacare is terrible. those were the guys i wanted to talk to because they were the guys with the leaflets so i said to them, they said who are you and i said actually i'm an academic doing research on these organizations in these ideas and trying to understand the guys and the men who believe this stuff. he will looked at me suspiciously and asked me questions and i just said look, here is what i am. i don't get it. but here is my job. i want to understand how you guys see the world. i want to understand your world view. , you will not convince me and i will not convince you. that's off the table. what is on the table as i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> is located on perhaps one of the most beautiful lakes in the country called lakes coeur d' alene on the northern shore up for the spokane river runs out at the lake. most people agree that the name, which would be two french words, cooler and a lien. it's a small leather mall and we think it was first used by
it needed was some fresh air. >> instead, all that's booming right now is the stock market and that's because the fed is printing more cash which is great for the rich, not good for everybody else. >> that's obama's version of trickle down economics and that's why w haven't had job creation. >> although we did have a good report on friday. >> but this is five years into a recovery and we have median incomes come down, five years showing signs of life. i'm in business, i want hope it lasts. >> i'm sending a body guard over to you, john, in washington because a lot of people in the streets may not share your point of view that income inequality is -- >> we got to allow john to answer that. >> look throughout history. it's those who get enormously rich who make our lives better. income inequality loves poor people. if you grow the economy lots of inequality but everyone will have jobs and the gadgets they want. >> i like a raising tide raises all boats. when it comes to a middle class in dis strotressdistress, detro forefront. rand paul at the bottom of the hour. up next, how all your
phone, as if obama care is somehow could be likened in any other way to the iphone. the reason they want to talk about that is because they are probably right. they probably will fix a whole lot of the glitches with the website. but what cannot be fixed is this idea that under a socialized european socialist program, health program where you have young, healthy people paying the way for older, sicker people are just not going to go along with it and it will collapse under its own weight. >> you know, the president has now reluctantly conceded that the promise about keeping the plan was wrong, polling data shows a majority thinks he deliberately lied about that. does it also now appear, charlie, that his other key promise about keeping your doctor may be just as false and misleading because most of these obama care plans exclude many doctors and hospitals in order to keep costs down? >> that -- the promise about keeping your doctor is every bit, if not more, untrue than the promise about keeping your health plan. because even if you get to keep your health plan, it's very possible that you won't
